What backpack do you guys recommend for a 5DII Gripped 35L attached, Sigma 85 1.4, 135L, and a 430EXII? I have a Crumpler 6 million dollar home and it does not fit all of the gear above. Any recommendations on backpacks guys?

I'm partial to F-stop backpacks. link (external link)

It all really depends on your use. If you are going to carry loads for long distances, the camera backpacks are kind of lacking. I have the newer Loka, which I use for day hikes.

Lowepro Fastpack 250. I just picked one up and love it. If you don't need the added laptop sleeve, go for the 200. Here is a link to my review: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1014029

The only backback I have is a Lovepro whatever the model for the 17" laptop is.

It's nice and works, but the quality of materials, zippers in particular, is below what the quality on the stealth reporters is. Also, this backpack's lens compartments are not high enough to store a 580EX Flash safely. I have the flash and a 70-200 f/4 lying flat in one long compartment now but it prevents me from reconfiguring everything to have the 70-200 on the camera by default (because the flash still has to lie down but there is no other equipment that could lie with the flash and then I run out of space).

It is also full of useless extra strapping that I'll probably cut off.

I got a Stealth Reporter 650 (the biggest) but haven't started using it.


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

tons of bag threads here. My suggestion is to spend some time on www.cambags.com (external link) looking at how each one is layed our with and wihout gear in it. That site helped me. For me, the ThinkTank Streetwalker series rocks. I also l iked the lowepro flipside 300 I had for a while.

I have to agree with above the street walker pro will handle the gripped 5DII great. I have one and it carries my gripped 5DII with a 24x70 on it along with my 70x200 f2.8, 17x50 and a flash and can handle a tripod on the outside. Also has lots of smaller pockets for cards and stuff.

Check out the Flipside 300. Very slim and discrete. I loved mine but I had to move up to a Streetwalker Pro after I got my 100mm L Macro because it was too small. No problem fitting a gripped body + 3 lenses & 580EX II inside though.

Streetwalker Pro might be too big for what you've got right now. I've got all the gear listed in my sig in it right now and I still have room for at least 2 more lenses.

I have the Flipside 300 coming this week (after doing a lot of research). Like the idea of the access being hidden when the pack in on my back....nice when you're in a crowd, on the subway etc.

Yeah, that's why I loved the 300 so much. I bring my bag into a lot of small, cramped clubs & bars to shoot shows where people are right up against me. Never had to worry about some drunk guy behind me unzipping my bag and going thru my stuff when I had it on.

When it was time to upgrade to a bigger bag, I *really* wanted to get the 400 but I hated the huge waist strap. Looked like I was going camping when I had that thing on my back.

Juest keep in mind that the Flipside 300 does NOT have a weather cover.

I've been happy with the Street Walker Pro, too.
